Slow Up-rising
Solar Park south, International Idea competition
Calabria, Italy
August 2010

“Subject: Solar Park South Works – Solar Highway – carried out by re-using
Salerno-Reggio Calabria highway sections between Scilla and Bagnara to be
decommissioned by the Italian Highways Authority.”

Solar Park South  brief



“Rather than completely demolishing the old route, with its extraordinary reinforced
concrete viaducts, now fully integrated within the landscape and the collective
imagination, the reuse and redevelopment of certain by-passed sections is proposed as

a means of boosting the production of renewable energy; experimenting with new
eco-friendly technologies; favoring connections between villages and access to
the valuable crops on mountain crests; and, finally, developing new forms of environmental
and land art capable of stimulating responsible tourism.”
